Skyrim midnight launches with prizes for first to arrive and costumes!
Blessings of Stendarr upon ye!
So- Skyrim is going to enjoy midnight launches (00.01 am on 11.11.11) at Birmingham New Street and London Oxford Street GAME stores.
This is cool in itself if you’re that keen to get your paws on it. Most Skyrim fans I know will be up at midnight anyway, possibly slightly drunk.
The first 250 people to join the queue at each store will receive a Skyrim goody bag, whilst the first 100 people in the queue will also receive a Skyrim strategy guide and Skyrim music CD! Get in!
As if that were not enough, fans who turn up dressed in Skyrim cosplay will have the chance to win five special prizes:
· Best cosplay outfit – winner will receive an Xbox 360, free upgrade to the Skyrim collector’s edition, Skyrim t-shirts, Skyrim strategy guide, Skyrim music CD and Skyrim goody bag
· Four runners up – will receive free upgrade to the Skyrim collector’s edition, Skyrim t-shirts, Skyrim strategy guide, Skyrim music CD and Skyrim goody bag
The winners will be decided by the staff just before doors open at midnight.
Fans who attend the midnight launch at GAME London Oxford Street will also have the opportunity to be photographed with a life-sized Elder Scroll!
In other words- good times all around. I wish I could be there to see the Nords and Elves and whatnot lined up outside GAME in the freezing cold. Good luck you brave adventurers!
